For just one day only, Woot has select MacBook configurations on sale in open box condition (opens in new tab) with prices starting as low as $389.99. Though open box models aren't sealed, they're oftentimes just as unused as any brand new product out there.

The biggest thing you miss out on by choosing an open box model is the full Apple warranty, though Woot does include at least 120 days of the original Apple warranty with the purchase. We've seen these sales sell out quickly in the past, so if you're interested you'll want to pick one up sooner than later.

Open-box or refurbished is the way to go if you want to save big bucks. Today only, Woot's having a sale on select MacBook models, including MacBook, MacBook Pro, and MacBook Air in open-box and refurbished condition while supplies last.

There is a single refurbished model in the sale, the 2015 MacBook Air (opens in new tab) on sale for $389.99, and though these have potentially been used before, they've been inspected and tested to ensure they're in proper working condition before being sold in this sale at Woot. Woot even includes a 90-day warranty with the purchase of this model.

Woot's sale has several different models of MacBook computers in stock currently, from the 16-inch 2019 MacBook Pro to the 12-inch 2017 MacBook, and various models in between. The most affordable open box model on sale today is the 13.3-inch mid-2017 MacBook Air on sale for $789.99 (opens in new tab), though for less than $100 more you can score the mid-2019 model on sale for $869.99 (opens in new tab).
